The Seller’s Valuation Sanity Check

 
How realistic is your anticipated selling price?
Every transaction is made possible by the cash flow of the company. The Seller’s Valuation Sanity Check examines your proposed value in light of its ability to pay an acquisition loan, a salary to the new owner, and provide a return on investment for the buyer’s cash down payment.
 
The parameters we use are those commonly expected by third party lenders, including most SBA lenders. They will create a salary expense whether the buyer expects to be paid or not.
 
Plug in your numbers and see how the price holds up. Hint: If the amount available for debt service isn’t sufficient, try lengthening the term of the loan. It has a big impact!
